3.5 stars One hundred percent honesty here... I origsinally stopped and gave this book a chance because of the come hither sexiness of the cover! I mean, seriously, who doesn't want to stop and see what he has to say! (And those of you getting ready to read it, that scene that's being depicted is hot AF. FYI) Gorgeous cover and smoking hot model aside, Lawbreaker was a feel good book. Huh? I know. You are losing interest but it's a great story. It's serious with a side of sass. It's romantic, definitely but the storyline is so much more. It has a message and one that should definitely be heard by many, many more. It's long though! It needs to be. Lawbreaker is all about building trust and a foundation. Kat and Stone Bastion needed every word in this book to build the story. I'm saying all this because I don't want you getting intimidated or give up. Learning, growing, and expanding your world view one "accident" at a time.

4.5stars When two people from completely opposite side meet and in an instant there is something more than just a meeting is an unexplainable urge to get to know the other person to the bottom of their souls, to know everything about eachother. A story about finding the one person who shows you that you can trust again to open up and with that giving them the power to hurt you or even better to love you. Both Ben and Shey are likable well-developed characters. What happens to Shay in the past is so sad and it was no wonder that she runs away. The week in which they exchange the side of how the other one live is really interesting passionate and we get to know them even more. Great intense, emotional story. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

5 Stars Review by Leah Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Lawbreaker, Unbreakable book three, by Kat Bastion brought one of my favorite songs Lost Boy to life but flipped the script. This is my first book to read by Kat Bastion and it brought so many feels and it was more than the lovely dovey feels. I normally read more grittier, dark, crime books but this one hit home without all of that. It’s crazy, I know! Shay is a runaway. She has been living on the streets since she was just a kid. It just gut checks me thinking of a child living on the streets but Shay is a survivor. She not only looks after herself, she does all she can to help others like her. She is selfless to a fault. But there is always that little thought in the back of her mind of wanting to belong. Always looking in the windows of a warm family home wishing one day she would be the one looking out. Taking a chance on a normal job, working for a living rather than pickpocketing Shay finds herself face to face with Ben Bishop. Ben dealing with his own demons has issues when he first meets Shay. The last thing he needs is for someone to come in and bring more drama into his life or his business. Ben struggling with a codependent mother, father that screwed over hundreds of people is ready to snap and he does, right at Shay. Poor Shay was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Shay being the strong, independent type does not back down and there goes the "law abiding citizen" job. Ben finally gets Shay to agree to meet and the fun begins. Shay shows him her world little by little. Their escapades throughout the book is amusing. Shay getting the straight laced collar wearing golfer to loosen up takes a push. “I’m winning you over, crime by crime.” I loved reading about the different characters in this book. Especially the ones Shay would visit weekly with cash, food, clothing or whatever was needed. It made me want to dig into their stories more. I am pretty sure I love Shay’s heart, I wanna be like Shay when I grow up. He came to me with the sweetest smile, Told me he wanted to talk for awhile, He said, Peter Pan, that's what they call me, I promise that you'll never be lonely- Lost Boy, Ruth B.

If you’re looking for a book that is not only heartwarming, but is also a perfect blend of wit, charm and smexyness, you can’t go wrong with a Kat & Stone Bastion novel. Lawbreaker, the third book in their Unbreakable series, is yet another wonderful, pull at your heart addition to their collection. Shay Morgan had to raise herself on the streets, stealing to provide not just for her but for the few she calls her own. And even though trust is not something that comes easily to her, a loving family is what she wants. She’s taken her first baby walking on the right side of the law by working at Loading Zone, where employees are like family. Ben Bishop grew up wanting for nothing, yet hating his parents and vowing to be the exact opposite of them. He upholds the law and helps others through his booming club Loading Zone. He never expected a gorgeous, sassy, Lawbreaker would come into his life and change it forever. As their battle of wits progresses, Shay and Ben slowly lower their defenses and start to trust one another. They make a one week deal where each bare themselves and their way of thinking to the other. When Ben’s father’s past is revealed though, together Ben and Shay are in a position to right the wrong. But if the line is crossed, will they be able to come back from it together? I’ve known since I picked up my first Kat and Stone book that theirs are true feasts and guaranteed to have you smiling because of the characters witty banter, loving their characters, and marveling at their stimulating plots and beautiful writing. I’m at a point where I’m sure I could pick out one of their books just by reading a snippet. They’re style is all their own and has a poetic cadence which I find entrancing. With Lawbreaker though, I took my time. I savored it. I would read the chapter titles and try to predict what was to come and then finish the chapter and just enjoy it. I even re-read a few because I simply didn’t want it to end. Beyond the banter between Ben and Shay, who dishes out as much as she gets, Kat and Stone once again create a seemingly impossible relationship. Even though they were similar in many profound ways, both battered yet determined, they were also on opposite spectrums of the law. And yet her being a Lawbreaker made Ben love her more because “she’d made it her life’s mission to help save the victims of the indifference.” This isn’t just a reverse Robin Hood, steal from the rich to give to the poor love story. Lawbreaker incorporates the important topic of our world’s abandoned and neglected citizens. Getting back to the romance though, I loved Shay and Ben’s. It was certainly unique. I’ve never read anything like it. It was also a bit wild with their strong personalities and difference of opinions, but it was also slow and sweet. Tender and sexy, and definitely touching. Finally, a Kat & Stone Bastion book wouldn’t be complete without cameo appearances from Cade, his sisters and other past characters. They complimented the story perfectly and helped Shay and Ben on their way to their HEA. Lawbreaker is standalone, full-length new adult romance by Kat & Stone Bastion. It’s an unputdownable slow burn, full of deliciously sweet and sexy moments. Written from both points of view with a happy ending.

Shay and Ben are from different worlds. Ben is wealthy, owns his own business, house, truck ... the whole shebang! Shay lives on the street or breaks into people's homes to sleep, and steals. But when she tries to go legit and get a job at Ben's bar, he fires her because he thinks she's underage. When he realizes his mistake, he goes after her and his life will never be the same. Although I really liked Ben and Shay's characters and the premise of the story, I just found that the story was all over the place. From being at a bar, to a golf tournament, to breaking into houses, to the game they play ... I just think that some of it could have been cut and the story would have jelled better. This is my opinion and no disrespect to the writers. I received an ARC courtesy of the author through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.

This was a very enjoyable best friend's sister story. Myles and Flynn are cute together but their past could keep them apart. I loved all the back and forth banter. After one craptastic day and perhaps one or two too many drinks Flynn finds herself face to face with the man who broke her heart and still lives in her dreams. Their history is something they both need to deal with as is her brother Oli but Myles decides quickly Flynn's worth it and he's not going to let anything get in his way. This is a really well done story and one I didn't want to end. Can't wait for more in this series. I definitely need Oli's story. I highly recommend this one.

4 Stars! I love these authors and their novels! I’ve been a fan for a long time. Kat & Stone Bastion know how to write a believable, mesmerizing story that makes you think, and fall in love with wonderful, captivating characters who might start out going in one direction but ultimately win you over as they journey through to the end. That’s what happened here. I loved Shay from the beginning. I even loved Ben from the beginning, too, but he was rough around the edges with a chip on his shoulder. However, I was soon won over and couldn’t help but love this read. From beginning to end, it was filled with beauty, amazing dialogue, and some pretty intense situations that kept me interested and glued to the pages. Phenomenal, exciting and fun! Shay is a street kid and she knows the hardships of life. But she’s also relentlessly unselfish as she cares for her friends and works hard to help those who are like her. She’s sweet, kind and full of stubbornness that has served her well. And, she’s sassy and smart. She’s had to be with the way she grew up. Deciding to try legit work, she takes a job as a bartender where she collides with Ben, who is broody, moody and full of conflict. He’s swamped with his own problems and when he handles a situation badly between the two of them, he has to put his pride away as Shay puts him through his paces while he tries to make things right. These two together... wow! I loved them. Their meet/greet was page turning! Their story was unique, intense and these authors give you a well written slow build/slow burn with a firey tension that made my heart speed up and my tummy flutter. Once they got past the initial conflict, they were accepting of one another, caring and the authors quickly shed light on Ben’s hardness to the tender man under all the gruff. He was swoon-worthy! Shay and Ben’s banter was lighthearted one moment and powerful the next. Like I said, this book had some amazing dialogue. It also had some truly well-written introspection as Shay detailed her life and her struggles. I will say some of the inner monologing got a little overwhelming on occasion and a bit repetitive a time or two, but overall, that was a small detour on an otherwise enjoyable read where I got to know Shay and Ben so personally. Both were easy to connect with and I just couldn’t put this book down! This is the third novel in the Unbreakable series and I loved seeing characters from previous books make appearances. I loved seeing their lives continue. Make no mistake though - you don’t need to read the previous books to read this one as it can be read as a standalone - however, you should because they are just as incredible as Lawbreaker.

I came to this book in the series by accident, a random choice from a list, but I'll be going back to start at the beginning for certain. I wasn't sure exactly what I was in for, but I certainly wasn't prepared for the depth that this story, these characters and this world took me to! This book follows the story of Ben and Shay. It is a romance, but not a light and fluffy one like many of us anticipate out of hand. There are BIG issues here, for the characters, their families and their lives. It was an odd, tense, pleasing experience to follow these two very opposite and yet very similar characters weave their way around one another and integrate their very different life experience into something that showed them that they just might be made for each other. Take a chance on Lawbreaker. Or pick up one of the earlier books in the series by these authors. You won't be disappointed!

There are thousands of great author out there, some already discovered and some waiting for me to do so. So when I saw the cover with Stuart on it, it’s sad to say but I wanted to read it. I read the blurb and it seemed like the kind of story I would love. Well this original 5 star didn’t disappoint me in the least. Shay has lived on the streets for a very long time. She was safer there then in her home. She’s a selfless young lady who helps everyone around her. Then comes Ben who’s born with privileges but he’s not without issues. They form an unlikely pair. Will she find what’s she’s looking for? Thrust again? This was an amazingly brilliantly written story. One that sucked me in the life of Shay. It’s a dry humoured, addicting and captivating story. Shay was my favourite character. Having brought herself up on the streets but also by being kind and generous to others. It’s an gut wrenching story but at the same time it can be heartwarming. Bottomline is this is a must read. This is the third book in the Unbreakable series. This is my first and I feel it can safely be read as a standalone. Told in a dual POV with a an HEA. I strongly recommend this story. It’s a lengthy story but these characters had a lot to say.
